  1. Guys, you all do a great job and this is a free service I appreciate. We play our 2nd bowl game in 22 seasons in 3 days. Can you update us on the team…what is happening w them, where do they practice, are they there already, update on injuries and such? I would love to know if Howard plans on playing. Any new news? Thanks guys.

  2. Is Fred Glass arranging a hot air balloon banner to hover over Memorial for this momentous bowl appearance?
    This should be done immediately to woo the favor of Her Majesty the Crean at Castle Skjodt.

  3. Enjoyed the piece, thanks Mike. How about the status of Howard, Fant and Simmons? How healthy are we? Thanks so much!
